Overview

Adopted at birth, fifteen year old Felicia Murphy has no idea she’s the offspring of a Fury and a god of Mercy. The discovery will soon shatter her world...

Felicia’s reputation as stable and trustworthy means everything if she’s to win the grant for the troubled kids she mentors.

Snakes emerging from her head, massive mood swings, and a strong thirst for vengeance do not fit into her plans. She has no time to worry about her adoptive parent’s separation and the unwanted discovery that her biological parents are supernatural freaks. She can’t confide in her friends; who would believe her?

As her life spins out of control, she allows herself to be distracted by the two new guys who are suddenly showering her with attention, pulling her in different directions.

Felicia has choices to make. Embrace the Fury and risk everything, or find a way to tame the beast.

    Date I started the book: 12/11 Date I finished the book: 12/11 G

    Date I started the book: 12/11
    Date I finished the book: 12/11
    Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
    Overall: Great book, fast paced and easy to read.
    Stars: 4 out of 5

    This book is about a 15 year old girl named Felicia who is adopted at birth, no one ever could identify their birth parents, it’s like she was materialized out of thin air, but what her adopted parents didn’t know when they found her was that she wasn’t only a baby, she was the daughter of two mythological creatures/gods, The Fury and The Mercy..... Luckily her life was pretty normal until she got her period for the first time and things started to change abruptly, she started to change and that’s when the game begins...
    I found myself pretty absorbed in the book, it’s very well written and the idea is pretty original, it’s not a paranormal book about mainstream creatures such as vampires, faeries, werewolfs, angels or demons, and I found that quite interesting. It’s a page turner, and very easy to read and follow. I loved all the characters, and it was hard for me trying to decide which one I liked more, Zane, Ryder or Cory, despite being a huge fan of bad boys myself, in this one I have to choose Ryder! He has all that mysterious aura around him and it’s like a mixture between bad boy and good boy and I’m looking forward to read more about him and Felicia in the future. 
    It was a great book and the only thing that made me rated it in 4 stars instead of 5 was the end, being a series it must have (IMO) a cliffhanger, something that would make me want to read the next one as soon as possible, and that wasn’t what happened, the end is good and happy but I felt like it would be a perfect book if the end had something that would make the readers to count the days off until the next one.
    I was given this book by the author in exchange of an honest review.

    Ryder *sigh*

    I really liked this book. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I thought it worked really well. I enjoyed reading about the Furies and about Lord Mercy, and I did like Felicia a lot. She has more guts than some other YA female main characters, who don't seem to have much substance. She was a real character, with depth and integrity, and I liked her. And she had powers! I love a girl with powers.

    What I liked:

    * The book started well and ended well. The last third was great. It ended neatly - no cliffhanger or need to read another book to get resolution.

    * I liked Ryder a lot, and Corey and Jade. Corey is a sweetie. Initially I didn't know what to make of Ryder, thinking he'd be a typical arrogant male lead who I'd want to punch, but he turned out lovely in the end. I don't want to give spoilers, but he was a great character. And he seemed gorgeous :)

    * I thought the book was well written, and I didn't notice mistakes. I liked that it was about Furies, instead of vampires or werewolves. That was different, and kept me reading. It had an interesting story line, and a lot of substance.


    What I didn't like:

    None of these were big issues.

    * We really never got a physical description of Felicia, which really annoyed me. About half way through we learn she has brown hair, but I don't know how tall she is, or her eye color. It would have helped me to visualise her much better if we got a physical description early on. I know that's hard to do in first person, but it would have improved the story.

    * The book has a lot of short chapters, which got kind of annoying. It's not a technique I see often, and I don't think it worked that well. It didn't make me not enjoy the story, but the impact of a short chapter is taken away when there are a lot of them.

    * I found the book a little uneven in the middle - kind of up and down and without a lot of direction - but it was wonderful in the latter third, so that sorted itself out. I didn't like the middle as much, but it was still really interesting and kept me reading.

    Overall, I really liked it, and would happily read the second book. I loved the ending! The last chapter was wonderful. I REALLY liked Ryder. Damn. He was great. I'm too old to be in love with a teenage boy, but DAMN :)

    When I first picked up Teen Fury, unleashed I was skeptical abou

    When I first picked up Teen Fury, unleashed I was skeptical about how good it would be. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my expectations were gravely mistaken. Not only did this book have diverse and interesting characters, they evolved in a realistic and interesting way as the story progressed. The plot was original, and proceeded at just the right rate; not rushed yet not meandering. The story as fascinating and once I started reading I did not want to stop because I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. All of this is topped off by a great setup for the sequel. I would strongly recommend this book for all those reasons, and more!     #TAS

    I thought this was a fantastic book for teens or anyone who enjoys paranormal YA. From page 1, it was obvious to me that the author has spent a lot of time around teenagers. The dialogue jumped off the page and rang true. I thought the protagonist, Felicia, was a great character that teens can relate to between the up and down relationships with her friends, crushes, and parent troubles. I liked that she does volunteer work and is a good role model, yet she isn't perfect and has problems just like all kids do. But, her problems take a paranormal turn as her body matures and her connection to the Furies becomes evident. I've always loved mythology and enjoyed reading this new spin on it. I'm delighted to see that there will be more books in the series.

    A Must Read

    I thought I had seen the gamut of teen angst, but I never saw anything like what poor Felicia Murphy has to face. She gets angry and she doesn't just throw a hair brush, she has snakes popping out of her head!

    Felicia had been adopted at birth and thought she was just an ordinary girl, until the snake thing. That's when she finds out she is the daughter of a Fury and the God of Mercy.

    At the same time two really hot guys show up in school and show an interest in her. What's that all about?

    Although there are dark moments, this is not a dark book. It has a wonderful message of love, light, and hope. A wonderful read for teens and those who remember what being a teen was all about.

And i also fell in love with Ryder,, Thank you for bringing me some smiles...

    GREAT BOOK GREAT BOOK! FROM A NON-TEEN READER!

    I do not like teen books, they feel like incomplete adult books to me. But not this one! I was bored and desided to read something I normally don't, and I am so glad I did. Unlike some teen (and adult) books the heroine wasn't a whiny needy brat, or a full of herself perfect brat. She was likeable and you cared what happened to her.
    When I was a teenager I thought my moodswings were bad, but atleast I did not have snakes coming to of my head and the power to do some real damage to the world around me.
    This book is part of a series; but you can read just this one and be statisfied. I am going to read the next one infact I already bought it.
    You should give this book a try.
